Brian David Boycourt, Commander, U.S. Navy, 50, born October 22, 1971, passed away peacefully August 18, 2022, after courageously battling adrenal cancer with both positivity and strength. He was surrounded by his loving wife, stepdaughters, and close friends in their home in Virginia Beach at the time of his passing. His kind nature and approach to living life with the utmost determination, will never be forgotten.
Brian was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and spent the majority of his younger years in Woodbridge, Virginia. He attended the University of Virginia as a NROTC student and graduated in 1994. He served honorably as a Surface Warfare Officer for more than 28 years. His final assignment was on the J-5 Staff, Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon.
Brian was extremely generous, kind, compassionate, and had a genuine heart of gold. Anyone that met him knew this about him. He possessed a keen sense of humor, but was also reserved and tranquil in character. He was a loving husband, father, stepfather, son, brother, and uncle. He loved nothing more than to spend quality time with family, his wife, and his beautiful daughters and stepdaughters, Emerson, Lauren, Mackenzie, and Kassandra.
He is survived by his loving wife, Helen Boycourt of Virginia Beach, VA; his parents, Ivon G. and Susan L. Boycourt of Dumfries, VA; his daughters, Emerson Rose and Lauren Mara Boycourt of San Diego, CA; and his stepdaughters, Mackenzie Kylee and Kassandra Sidney Frew of Virginia Beach, VA.
